Where we are


Fazenda Marinha is located at Praia da Aguada, at the Ilha Guaíba Terminal (TIG), on Ilha Guaíba, in Mangaratiba – RJ.

What is the asset's purpose?

Since 1996, the project has been monitoring bioindicators and carrying out environmental education activities aimed at residents, employees and visitors, also seeking to strengthen the fishing activity of local communities.
Its priority is to strengthen fishing activity, carry out bioindicator monitoring and promote environmental education actions, in addition to promoting interaction between Vale and local communities, employees and visitors.

What has already been done?

The courses in mariculture and handicrafts with shells in the region directly benefited more than 500 residents who are part of the local fishing community. The environmental education and training activities promoted by the project reached 2,000 people.
Vale also offers technical support in the area of mariculture to associations that have oysters and mussels as a source of income. Another action promoted is the cultivation of microalgae for food in mariculture, an initiative that has already allowed the release of more than 20 million shrimp post-larvae in Sepetiba Bay.
